Consumer review by: Ajzimm3rman (newegg.com)

Waste of time

 

I took it back on the second day.

Simple. Light. Small. Also has a nice pour cup

It couldn't froth milk at all. Coffee would rise to the top with milk on the bottom. Also took forever to boil. The handle on the side is Horrible and flimsy, and way too small

Good Espresso but cheap

 

That was one expensive cup of espresso!!

It makes great espresso the one cup I got

The basket handle snapped off on the first brew. I had read bad reviews about this machine, and decided not to buy it. But received it for a Christmas gift

A Terrific Machine for the Price

 

I first bought this cappuccino maker as a gift 4 years ago. It is still going strong and the recipient loves it

I am very happy with it. No complaints

Makes great coffee/harder to maintain habit

 

I have a slightly larger Mr Coffee version of this one, and it makes fine espresso/capp drinks, takes a few minutes, esp. when brewing 4 cups, but works fine

My caffeine habit is growing and harder to maintain, now if i don't make my now usual 2 morning cap's before i leave for work I end up with a headache by noon ... watch out

I'm Impressed

 

SteveBucks no guilt Mocha Cappachino: Put 3 bags of nutrisweet (the blue stuff) and one heaping tablespoon of Hersheys Chocolate Milk Mix in the decanter and brew the espresso. Steam milk w/o the frother (because you threw it away) by putting the steam...

Simple, easy to use and makes a very good cup of espresso. This is an excellent value especially considering that it cost the same as 6 or 7 Starbucks cappachinos and mine taste every bit as good as theirs

It comes with a joke. The joke is the frothing nozzle. It makes BIG bubble froth. This is not funny. Take it off and throw it away. Did not come with a steaming pitcher

ok, but lacks presure

 

My wife and I are true coffee addicts. We have since sold this one in a garage sale and bought a Silvia ( stainless industrial machine ) for around $400. If you want a decent machine make sure you are spending at least $60 on it. The cost of a good...

Low Price, Black finish, looks better than most. Functional machine

Low Preasure. If you want to get the caffiene out of your beans you need lots of preassure. This unit in my opinion lacks preasure to get the job done. Also since it doesn't have high preassure it takes forever to froth your milk. Spent a little more...

Great Value

 

One 4 cup of Espresso really gets me going in the morning!

High pressure steam is capable of brewing through tightly packed ground espresso

Good espresso for a cheap machine

 

Buy this if you don't mind replacing it every year. At the average price of this machine compared to a $150 machine, the expensive one would have to last 6 years to get the same $ per service life.

Can make up to 4 or 5 pretty good cups of espresso at one shot. Good price for making a decent cup of espresso (as good as Starbucks, but not as good as the real Italian stuff)

I've owned 2 of these because after a year you have to replace it. The caraffe handle on both of mine broke. Both were used on a daily basis. They start to get slow after a while even if you clean them out

Great Product

 

If you want to make a cup of COFFEE, then you need to buy a coffee maker! This product is for making Espresso and frothing milk for lattes and mochas. I really think that it does a great job. After making the espresso, I remove the plastic frother ...

Compact. Good price. Espresso part shut off automatically after making it

Cheap Espresso

 

I've had this steam espresso maker for a few years now and while I realize there are much better options out there I'm content making espressos and cappuccinos with this machine. Its biggest downfall is that due to its price its bound to be used by ...

Cheap, makes decent espresso

Short frothing wandEasy to run out of frothing steam
